    Nominus Expers' Scribblings

    I'm actually nervous about posting anything on this site, even to a sketchbook. We'll see if my concern is baseless or not.

    You shouldn't have any concern, the fact you started with a sketchbook ,and not somehwere else, means a whole lot to us.

    But, for starters, break down anatomy, and purchase a book or two on anatomy, study tonal values, and shading. Bridgeman , hogarth , loomis, are all great names to study by!


    One thing I think helps everybody , or well It helps me, is to just draw a bunch of stick figures, in all types of poses, just fill a page with them doin' just about everything.

    Thanks, that means a lot to me. The stick figure idea has helped in the past, and I still use it when studying for some pieces; I guess I should use it more often xD

    As for anatomy I've studied a lot, but I seem to have hit a roadblock lately; tonal values and shading I've barely studied at all I'm ashamed to say. I was hoping someone would point me in that direction; gut feeling's great and all, but a second opinion is always helpful.

    Some colored work next, I think. Anthropomorphic creatures tend to get a bad rap, but I've seen some excellent work in that genre. The first piece was for a friend, the second is a self portrait, and the third is a cute, stylized critter that I sometimes use to represent myself. The colored works are a combination of watercolor and copic markers; graphite sketch and inked with a fountain pen.

    'nother sketch of a character I'm playing in my AD&D group. Post apocalyptic environment, couple of other tweaks. He's chaotic neutral and has access to all cleric spells dealing with life...or death. Because of his focus he gains spells at an accelerated rate. The bike is actually four-wheeled.

    Process

    Process of a recent "portrait". I sell some work in the furry fandom, with my specialty being turning a person into their imaginary character or "fursona"; in essence, an anthropomorphic portrait. These are the stages I go through: A sketch study of the person's features and pose if photo reference is provided and notes on the species and its traits. I then translate that into a sketch, which I then ink. After inking I clean up the piece with an eraser and a brush, I tape it to my work surface using masking tape and saturate it with water to prepare it for watercolor. Once it's dry, I paint. I might post some more of these process things.

    Thanks ^__^ I like feedback on my work, and since I have some more pieces en queue I should be able to post a few more of these processes before too much longer. Any thoughts?
